Monsanto Has a Well-Deserved Reputation Of Being a Manufacturer of Deadly Chemicals

Monsanto can not separate their history of producing deadly defoliants from its claims of glyphosate safety

Monday, November 30, 2020 - Monsanto does not have the best reputation and public opinion of the company has no doubt influenced jurors. Three separated trials against Monsanto by plaintiffs that used Roundup herbicide and developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a rare and deadly form of cancer, have been decided in favor of the plaintiffs for approximately $50 million each on average. Bayer, the parent of Monsanto, is in talks to settle about 90,000 cases against them for the sum of around $10 billion. Tens of thousands of other plaintiffs with cancer allegedly caused by using the herbicide wait their turn in federal court beginning again in 2021. Thousands of more plaintiffs have filed suit in state courts all over the US. Governments in Europe have initiate phased-in bans of glyphosate that began in 2020. Roundup cancer lawsuit attorneys provide expert legal representation at no cost unless they collect for their clients.

Monsanto has a reputation for producing deadly chemicals such as dioxins and agent orange, a defoliant used against the Vietnamese to destroy their sources of food, canopy shelter, and to clear the jungle for troops to occupy. Monsanto was acquired by German industrial giant Bayer in 2018 for $63 billion and the company now wants people to believe that glyphosate, the company's signature weed killer, is nothing like its predecessors. Unfortunately for Monsanto, plaintiff attorneys argue the theory that "by the fruit, you will know the tree" and that it is impossible to reconcile Monsanto's claims of glyphosate safety with the company's history of producing carcinogenic chemicals. Experts are concerned that glyphosate could be as bad or even worse than dioxin and agent orange and have a devastating effect on all human life. Glyphosate is already being blamed by scientists at MIT for causing a disruption in the human gut biome and causing DNA damage. The defoliant is thought to be responsible for the epidemics of Autism, Alzheimer Disease, and obesity that affect society today. It has been 50 years since the end of US involvement in Vietnam, but the consequences of Agent Orange still plague their society.

According to a paper recently released by Ohio State Pressbooks titled "The Use and Effects of Agent Orange in Vietnam" the effects of having sprayed hundreds of thousands of liters of Agent Orange continue to reverberate throughout Vietnamese society. "Herbicides were sprayed by military forces of the United States during the Vietnam War (1961-1971). A debate has been waged since the early '70s as to whether the use of herbicides is associated with diabetes, cancer, birth defects, and other serious ailments." Also, studies show a link between dioxin, agent orange and "type 2 diabetes, many types of leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, prostate, and respiratory cancers, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, and birth defects among other ailments," according to Ohio State Press.

Individuals that have used Roundup herbicide during their occupation as farmers, landscapers, government parks, and property maintenance are filing suit against Bayer/Monsanto for failing to warn consumers of what they knew or were obligated to know of the dangers of glyphosate. People are concerned that glyphosate may have similar long-term ramifications like those for dioxins and agent orange on all human health.
